The 2019 Salary Survey was compiled with data gathered from the 2019 ACLP Member Survey. More than 1,900 ACLP members participated in the survey, and 645 of those who responded provided salary information. These responses provide a snapshot of the average compensation for child life specialists as well as information about how education level, job category, work environment, and geographic location affect compensation.
