Chartwell Center New Orleans

Serving New Orleans Area Children with Autism and Related Disorders


The Chartwell Center is a non-profit organization that serves children with autism and related disorders.

Founded in 1999 by parents and professionals concerned about the urgent lack of autism-specific education in the greater New Orleans community, Chartwell provides direct educational services to children ages three to maturity and offers training and technical support to parents, teachers and other professionals. For the school year 2014 - 2015, Chartwell will accept children ages three to maturity at our new location.

In May, 2013, we purchased our future home located at 1225 Magazine Street. Upon completion, the new building will allow us to provide direct services to children and young adults as well as offer training and support to families, teachers, and other professionals under one roof. Currently the school serves three classrooms: pre-K, elementary, and our middle/high school PATH (Performing and Achieving Transitional Heights) program, which serves students age 12 - 21. Instructional methods reflect nationally recommended practices for children with autism and related disorders.
