The boys either get along great or they just somewhat ignore each other.  -- We also have a 9 year old dd who is a typical child.  She gets along with both of them.

Quoting Christa4924:

 Do they get along with each other?

There was no consoling them. Screaming, crying, scratching non stop. Trying to climb up you as they screamed. Arching their back. I couldnt touch our oldest - when I touched him he would scream. They wouldnt take formula or breast milk.

what wasn't 'normal' about them?

I dont believe vaccines cause their autism nor do I believe vaccines made it worse. You could tell they werent like normal newborns.

did vaccines cause it?

I have a son with high functioning autism myself. I have always wondered with two autistic kids.. are they aware of each other? do they play together?

They didnt start playing together until about 2 years ago. 1 son is into dinos our other son is into trains. Theyll put the dinos in a traincar and haul them around the yard. They are aware of each other. We do everything together so they know each others likes and dislikes - they like to lay together on the bed looking at books or playing on their tablets.

Sure you do.  What society considers autistic these days is just a way for parents to make excuses for their kids behaiver.

Very cool. Sounds like fun. Do you have any problems taking them out in public or is that still hard (cause of sensory problems, issues.. )?

They are ALL boy.. Trains and dinosaurs.  Are they verbal?

Do either of them have meltdowns that result in physical attacks on others? If so how do you turn it around so they chill?

My boys were diagnosed back when it was hard as hell to get a diagnosis.
