Drew McDowell 9 of Souderton, Pa. who is autistic, does not understand what this little boy wants, which is to move so he can turn on the faucet. The confrontation almost leads to something physical, however turns out in which the little boy just leaves. Drew is the second child of Jill and Stacy McDowell who have another child Danny 15 who is also autistic. Danny who is staying for the moment at Foundations in Doylestown, Pa., will be transferred to Bancroft in New Jersey where their facility is better suited to provide for Danny. Jill and Stacy had to hire a lawyer to get Danny the right placement. Drew is low functioning and non verbal only making gutteral sounds. The raising of two boys with autism is stressful for the McDowell family and at one point had Jill McDowell on antidepressants.
