Dropping in with an ear question...

My kiddo had her ears checked again today by an audiologist. She has speech issues - namely, she doesn't really talk - and the hearing eval is part of the process before the eval with a speech therapist. (We went through this 1.5 years ago, so I'm pretty familiar with the process already. Haha.)
The tests they did (headphone test with speech volume, not frequencies... Speaker test with voice and frequencies) came back okay for both ears, but her left ear has no 'acoustic reflex'. I was following along with most of what the audiologist said until we got to this part, and then Caitie was going a little crazy and I didn't quite understand this. I understand she doesn't have fluid buildup, and that the eardrums themselves are working normally (I guess?), but her left ear had no acoustic reflex after 5 tries with the scope-thing by two different people. One of them said not to worry about it, since she can definitely hear in that ear, but I can't help it. I worry about everything.
So I guess my question is, SHOULD I be worried or am I freaking out over nothing?
