About High Tide Press
In the early 1900s, the idea of creating a publishing house devoted to bolstering the knowledge and understanding of staff working with people with intellectual and developmental disabilities emerged from the leadership group of Trinity Services.
In 1995, the idea became a reality when the Board of Directors of the Trinity Foundation established High Tide Press Publishing.
The name High Tide Press reflects that at high tide that the sea reaches its highest level. High tide helps ships to reach shore more easily.
Today, High Tide Press publishes books, training materials, interactive learning materials, and other media products for professionals and administrators within human services, health care, non-profit management, government agencies, and the community.
The purpose of High Tide Press is to enhance the lives of people with disabilities. We do that by publishing best and promising practices, promoting a productive, positive work culture, inspiring quality leadership performance, and introducing positive psychology to those working with intellectual or developmental disabilities.
Our authors are professional practitioners and leaders in their disciplines or area of expertise. In addition to our original target audience of developmental disability professionals, our readership has grown to include parents and guardians, academics, other stakeholders, and the general public.
