2015 Speech and Hearing Professionals Salary Survey Results, Part 3

Average speech and hearing professionals’ salaries broken down by experience, region and geographical location

Nearly 1,400 professionals from across the country participated in our 2015 salary survey. Like last year, we asked for an exact salary amount instead of a salary range. A total of 1,370 respondents contributed through the online edition of ADVANCE for Speech & Hearing Professionals between Nov. 10, 2015, and Feb. 29, 2016.

Among many interesting discoveries, Part 1 of this three-part series showed the average salary for all full-time respondents in all speech and hearing categories to be $67,519. While Part 2 showed that although women continue to dominate the field, in our survey, men who are staff SLPs earned an average salary of between 20% and 25% more than women in the same position.

We also learned most of you apparently enjoy your work a great deal as nearly 9 in 10 of our survey takers described themselves as being satisfied or better with their jobs.

Part 3 focuses on salaries based on your experience in the field, the region of the country in which you live, and a comparison of compensation in urban, suburban and rural settings.

The following downloadable PDFs present the data in much greater detail, both on a national and regional level. Check out Part 2 of the salary survey results categorized by education, title and gender. Part 1 broke down our salary survey results by employment status, workplace and age.
