How to improve hearing loss of problem of a 6 year old?

How can I assist my daughter of 6yrs with hearing loss to improve on her speech development? My daugther was born with hearing loss defect and when we discovered it, we got Hearing Aids for her. Though with the help of the equipment, her hearing and speech have both improved, but her speech needs to be worked on. How do we go about this as parents?
