2020-salary-survey cover
The 2020 Salary Survey was compiled with data gathered from the responses of more than 1,600 Certified Child Life Specialists. These responses provide a snapshot of salary and FTE distribution; the prevalence of benefits such as childcare, health insurance, and retirement plans; and the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic.

In addition, supplemental reports for Canada and four U.S. Census divisions are now available for members only. ACLP members may access these regional reports and read the 2019 Salary Survey by logging in to the website using the button above.

Please contact Meagan Roloff, Director of Member Engagement & Partnerships, at with questions.
