Hi Smriti,
Hearing function should be normal for proper speech development as auditory inputs are important for reception of vocal sounds.
As on your child evaluation of auditory function, it is showing abnormality , this should be corrected as early as possible to correct the speech by using hearing aids.
Consult your ENT Surgeon for the treatment options for your child and discuss your concerns regarding the alternative options with them.
Hope i have answered your query.
