First of all, Hi and Welcome. Sorry it took me so long to respond.
I don't have any expirience with this. I have heard a lot of talk about a connection between autism and the MMR vaccine but I'm in no way an expert on the subject and don't really have an opinion. Have you posted this question on the Developmental Disabilities board? or on the Vaccine boards? Maybe someone there can help you more.
My child was typically developing until his MMR. He changed overnight. It's been a long road to recovery and I don't think we'll ever reach 100%. He is now diagnosed with autism.
I am not saying the MMR "gave" him autism, but I do think his personal biological system had a bad reaction and set off the autism, as has been proven to happen to some children in the past.
Keep an eye on it and if you see any developing delays on ongoing behavioral issues that do not improve, please take your child for an evaluation, as early intervention will be your child's best shot.
Also, vaccines are not necessary to send your child to public school. You can get an exemption. I hate that anyone would feel bullied into vaccinating their child thinking their child needs it for school, but since Big Pharma wants you to vaccinate and has everyone in their pockets, they are quick to tell you you need vaccines for school but consistently withhold that there are exemptions available.
