My daughter is 3 years old. She failed OAE testing at 3 years of age. She has issues with articulation and has been in speech therapy for over a year. Scores are 1% for understandability. Our audiologist did not tell us much. Can I get your insight into my daughter's audiogram?

She has never commented on hearing loss. In loud areas, she does not answer us or look, and it does not matter what we say. We ask her if she wants chocolate, but she does not answer. She also will not respond appropriately if you are not facing her. We can talk in a normal voice when we are alone, but not in a whisper. She has an excellent comprehension of small items that is if you say directly to her point a comb in the book, she can point it out. However, if you are giving her directions, it is up in the air if she will be able to do it or not.
She has been under the speech therapy since she was 25 months old. She is now 39 months. She barely qualified at 25 months. However, the last evaluation showed a decline in speech. They are still working on beginning sounds. She gets every syllable right and the intonation correct; however, the actual sounds of the words are incorrect. She talks all the time, but very little is understandable to family and much less by an unfamiliar listener. She is constantly trying to talk. She does not get frustrated with us. She looks at us like we are stupid and walks off. She often forces our faces when we are talking to her so that she can see our faces.
There is no ear discharge, ear infections, colds or flu. Her pediatrician has never seen fluid in her ear. She had Strep throat before a year, and that is the last time she was sick. She was born with sepsis and was put on IV antibiotics (ototoxic) at birth. She spent seven days in NICU. Is conductive hearing loss treatable? Could this be from liquid behind the ear that we do not know? What are the examples of middle ear diseases?
