sir,
thank u fr contacting us.
1. hearing loss in your child is >95 db(appx) which amounts to severe to profound sensorineural hearing loss
2. hearing aids & speech therapy have to be started at the earliest for such children which would help in the normal development of speech as the child grows,and here as u say it has not helped much ,which means she needs the next line of treatment i.e cognitive implants which will help in this case
3.Get to see an ent doctor at the earliest regarding implants and collaborate with a speech and hearing specialist as well,so that both can work together

dont get disheartened,it will be fine...just get to a ent doctor soon without delay,as any further delay can delay speech development in the child

regards,
dr.sowmya
