ASHA conducted the 2012 Schools Survey—the second distributed by ASHA to audiologists—to gather information about service provision, earnings and other professional topics. Nearly 300 school-based audiologists (a 54 percent response rate) completed the survey. More than 1,000 (8.5 percent) of ASHA-certified audiologists are employed in schools, according to ASHA's year-end 2012 membership and affiliation counts.
Median pay
The survey shows a modest rise in the academic year [PDF] salaries of school-based audiologists since 2010 . The overall median academic year salary of audiologists was $63,000, up from $60,000 (a 5 percent increase). The median calendar year salary was $69,836, down slightly from $70,239 (a 1 percent decline).
Salary supplements
In the 2012 Schools Survey, we asked audiologists whether they received a salary supplement, stipend, bonus or other type of "salary upgrade" and, if so, why they received it. One-fifth (20 percent) of audiologists indicated they received a supplement for having the ASHA Certificate of Clinical Competence; 8 percent for doing extra work (for example, Medicaid billing, supervision); 3 percent as a recruitment/retention bonus; 2 percent for providing bilingual services; and 3 percent as a result of a value-added assessment.
Employer-paid career-related expenses
In the survey, audiologists indicated their employers are more likely to [PDF] pay for continuing education fees and conference fees than for certification/membership dues or state licensing fees.
