Danny McDowell 15 of Souderton, Pa., lays on his bed in his new home at Bancroft in Haddonfield, NJ on Wednesday August 9, 2006. Danny's body is marked with bruises due to Danny hurting himself. Autistc children have no real sense of pain and can hurt themselves and not be fully cognizant of what they are doing, as in Danny's case. Both Jill McDowell and her husband Stacy, who have another autistic son at home, needed to find a safe and controlled environment for Danny to live. After hiring a lawyer and fighting with insurance companies, Jill located Bancroft a home for special needs children and educated in the caring of autistic hildren, felt safe and comfortable for Danny to live here. Bancroft has a one-to-one ratio per partient. photo by jane therese
