Hi Cindy!

Speech therapists and Audiolgists work closely with ENT specialists in the multidisciplinary approach of patient care/management. If your daughter has had grommets, it would be a good idea to visit the ENT as well, in order to assess accordingly in light of her recent hearing test results.

Kind regards...
