Hi. My fiance (very soon to be wife) and I are contemplating a move to Charlotte (likely south Charlotte). She is a licensed speech pathologist in LA. Currently she works for the school district, and has private clients on the side. Does anyone know what the climate/demand is like for someone like that, or what the going rate is for private therapy is the in the Charlotte area? I know I can't really compare, but in LA, its not uncommon to see $125-$150/hr. It will obviously be less in Charlotte, but if the conversion keeps in line with other incomes and expenses (from LA-Charlotte) then we'd be ok. That sort of equals $75-$90/hr in Charlotte. Any thoughts?

Well, I moved from LA as a school counselor and my salary is 50% less here.

You can do searches on the CMS website or the Union County Public Schools website and it lists speech salaries.

My wife's caseload for early intervention is anywhere between $25-$45 an hour. I'll let her continue this response as she can obviously offer you better information. If you can find $75-90 an hour, please let us know!

Hi, I am Carolinaguys's wife. WOW, I haven't heard of anyone around here getting 75-90 an hour. The closest to that I have heard is at a hospital where you bill fee for service, and can possibly get 3-4 treatments in an hour (you get paid per visit at $25, thus making $100 an hour) however that wouldn't be an everyday thing. Let me know if I can be of any assistance in your transition. Thanks

My son had speech therapy about seven years ago and I can say there's definitely a demand for it here. I'm sorry to say that I don't remember what the rate was, as it was partially covered by our insurance. I know it wasn't close to $100/hour.
