First, these are detected in MRI scans, this points to a neurological problem, not something brought on by a vaccine. The purpose of a vaccine is to cause an immune system response, there is no evidence that this response or anything thing contained in the vaccine could cause problems in neurological development.

It is very unlikely the vaccines you mentioned (typically delivered at 2 months) could cause Autism, even more so given the total lack of corroborating evidence. None of these vaccines either together or separate have been correlated to a higher chance of getting autism.

Lastly, there is nothing in this study to show that they controlled for vaccine exposure, which makes it impossible to say if all of these children were even vaccinated to begin with.
