How Much Do Speech Language Pathologists Make? SLP Salary Information

The American Speech-Language-Hearing Association (ASHA) conducted a comprehensive survey of SLP's in 2015 that contains detailed information on the topic of average/median annual salaries. According to their reports, the median annual salary for Speech Pathologists was $75,000 in 2015. Practice owners reported a slightly higher annual salary of about $77,000. In their report, the median annual salaries for clinical service providers was about $70,000 while administrators and supervisors enjoyed salaries greater than $90,000/year.

How Facilities Factor In

The survey also pointed out that the type of facility you work in greatly affects your pay. SLPs working in outpatient clinics and office settings earned annual salaries closer to $68,000 while SLPs working in Skilled Nursing Facilities (SNFs) earned closer to $90,000. Employees working in VA hospitals also reported earnings similar to Speech-Language Pathologists working in SNFs. Many of the SLP travel jobs available through staffing agencies like us are with high paying SNF facilities.

Why Location Matters

ASHA's survey also pointed out that location is nearly just as important as facility type. Among those surveyed, Speech Pathologists working in rural areas made the most money while urban areas made less. Speech-Language Pathologists working in suburban areas made the least amount. Rural areas are among the hardest to staff, therefore facilities in these areas often turn to staffing agencies such as Advanced to find qualified and talented Speech Pathologists. For this reason, many of the SLP travel jobs available through Advanced Travel Therapy are for rural areas. This means that your earning potential is often highest with travel positions.

Experience Trumps All

Experience is one of the most defining factors in terms of salary. SLPs with 1-3 years of experience earned in the low $60,000's while Speech-Language Pathologists with more than 16 years experience earned an average of $90,000/year.

According to, as of January 2017 the national average salary for a Speech Language Pathologist is about $74,156 per year. Something to keep in mind though, is that SLP Travel Jobs typically pay much higher and have better benefits than permanently placed Speech Pathologists. Additionally, Indeed relies on hiring data for their salary information. Since most Speech Pathologist jobs pay less when you're first hired than they do after you work for several years it makes sense that this number might be lower than other reports. It's important to remember that location, specialty, setting and experience play huge roles in determining your earning potential. Another online salary resource, GlassDoor, estimates the national average for Speech-Language Pathologists to be $69,309 which is definitely on the low end of the spectrum. SLP travel jobs typically pay much better. It's also important to keep in mind that much of GlassDoor's information comes from people who have quit or been fired from their positions, which results in many unfavorable reports.
