Welcome to CHART! Our purpose at CHART is to connect families with the people, tools, and services that will help them to support their loved one with autism or a sensory processing disorder. We share local resources and events taking place in Chapel Hill, NC and around the Triangle. We also address national news about autism and share our personal experiences and tips. Please join us on Facebook and Twitter for the most up-to-the-minute news.

Thanks to the incredible generosity of a reader, we are pleased to have a selection of books available to share in our lending library. Books from the CHART lending library can be delivered at the Autism Society of North Carolina Orange Chatham coffee gatherings or monthly chapter meetings most months. We are unable to mail books or arrange for alternate pick up arrangements at this time.

To request a book from CHART's lending library, email us with the title of the book you would like. If it is available, we will bring it to an ASNCOC meeting. Books are lent for up to a month; please arrange to return borrowed materials at the following month's ASNCOC event.

One of the many excellent books in our lending library.
