The median annual wage of speech-language pathologists was $66,920 in May 2010. The median wage is the wage at which half the workers in an occupation earned more than that amount and half earned less. The lowest 10 percent earned less than $42,970, and the top 10 percent more than $103,630.
Most speech-language pathologists work full time. Those who work on a contract basis may spend considerable time traveling between facilities to treat patients.
