About the Author

Hey! I'm Veronica Crafton, the author of Learning the Language of Autism and owner of Amazingly Uplifted. I have worked in the autism community in various capacities over the last 18 years. Take a walk down memory lane with me!

It all started at Emory's Autism Preschool. I worked as an assistant teacher in an inclusion class of 3 and 4 year olds and fell in love on the first day. I knew at that moment working with children with autism was going to be the path for me.

In 2007 I became a special education teacher for the HAVEN program in Cobb County. I had a blast teaching my students and training my paraprofessionals. There I learned to meet the needs of children of various abilities simultaneously. Teaching 5 grades at once in a self-contained classroom wasn't easy but we had fun!

After earning an M.Ed., 6 years of teaching and being voted Teacher of the Year by my peers, I started to see a pattern in the students that were referred to my classroom. The common theme was that teachers didn't have enough training in behavior management and instruction. Being the solution oriented person that I am, I started to wonder how I could remedy this problem.

The answer: Amazingly Uplifted! I started AU in 2013 with the hopes of providing quality educational consulting for teachers from teachers. In the early years of AU we focused on in-class support, coaching teachers, and professional development. In 2018 I decided to add Applied Behavior Analysis to the roster due to the high demand from parents. We provided ABA services in homes and in our autism center until 2022. In 2023 I decided to solely focus on schools and parent support which lead me to becoming an author.
