BCBA or Child Life Specialist

I am currently an RBT, and in the process of getting my bachelor's in psychology. I planned on becoming a BCBA, but I recently learned about being a child life specialist. I have a lot of experience in working with children, so i'm not necessarily concerned about the experience. I am more curious about the how and how the salaries compare, at least in california. What would the steps be after I got my bachelors degree? And how do the salaries compare between being a BCBA and a child life specialist?

Please let me know if you have any info!

Just so you know, this forum isn't so much for specialized advice on careers and post-grad, it's more for students going through the college admissions process. I and people here likely can't tell you about the post-grad process or how the salaries compare.
