Salaries and Wages
The 2012 ASHA Schools Survey shows a modest rise in the overall salaries and wages of school-based speech-language pathologists since 2010. The overall [PDF] median academic year salary of SLPs was $60,000, up from $58,000 (a 3 percent increase). The median calendar year salary was $70,000, up from $65,000 (an 8 percent increase). The median hourly wage of SLPs who are contract employees was $52.55, up from $50 (a 5 percent increase).
Salary Supplements
In the 2012 Schools Survey, we asked SLPs whether they received a salary supplement, stipend, bonus or other type of "salary upgrade" and, if so, why they received it. Nearly one-quarter (22 percent) of SLPs indicated they received a supplement for having the ASHA Certificate of Clinical Competence; 11 percent for doing extra work (for example, Medicaid billing, supervision); 5 percent as a recruitment/retention bonus; 2 percent for providing bilingual services; and 2 percent as a result of a value-added assessment.
