Instructor Information

Joe Comeau
Joseph Comeau, M.S.ED, CCC-SLP, entered the fascinating realm of telepractice in 2015 when he was given one week to organize and implement a telepractice program for a school caseload consisting of 56 students. Much has changed and developed since then, and Joseph now manages, trains, supports and motivates other tech-savvy and adventurous clinicians working with the EBS Telepractice team. Joe has been presenting Continuing Education training to audiences across the country and across the internet since 2008. A Master of Science degree in Education with a Certificate of Clinical Competence makes Joe a teacher and trainer who lives for the thrill of seeing the “wow” moment when his students see the light.
