Results: On average, young people with SLI were less successful than their peers without SLI, but they did attain some achievements. Young people with SLI obtained E~2, mostly vocational qualifications in the first few years post school. Young people continuing in education at 19 years were most commonly in lower level educational placements than their typically developing (TD) peers.
