Salary supplements
The survey asked SLPs whether they received a salary supplement or other type of “salary upgrade” and if so, why they received it. The ASHA Certificate of Clinical Competence earned a supplement for 24 percent of respondents, up slightly from 22 percent in 2012. Twelve percent received a supplement for doing extra work (for example, Medicaid billing or supervision); 5 percent as a recruitment/retention bonus; 3 percent as a result of a value-added assessment; and 2 percent for providing bilingual services.
