If in fact your child does have a hearing loss.  There is support.
There are groups called Self Help for the Hard of Hearing (SHHH).
This is a national organization, with chapters in each of the 50
states.  The phone number for the National SHHH is 1-301-657-2248.  

Good luck with the Speech Patholgoist.  I personally had  a speech
path. when I was small . It was not becuase I was suffering from
hearing loss, but both my parents are profoundly Deaf.  The speech
path. really helped me!
