Speech and Language Therapy Data
I wish to advise the Deputy that the estimated salary cost for the employment of a speech and language therapist, on a full-time basis, would be an average salary cost of €55,000 per annum for a Speech and Language Therapist grade, or €70,000 per annum for a Senior Speech and Language Therapist grade.
The estimated cost of employing ten new speech and language therapists would therefore be either approximately €550,000 per annum, or €700,000 per annum, depending on the grade level of the therapists employed.
