I'm not 100% sure, but here's my best guess. It sounds like she may have some kind of impedance - fluid build up, slightly malformed ear drum, something - on the one side. It's possible that the difference is small enough that they don't feel she would benefit from putting a hearing aid in her weaker ear. Since she can hear speech in the weaker ear, and hears fine with her stronger one, they probably don't feel that her speech and language development will be impacted by the difference.

That being said, it sounds like you left there with a lot of questions and some doubts. IMO, it wouldn't hurt to seek a second opinion if possible. If you don't want to do that, I would at least see if you can get an appointment either with an audiologist or maybe your pediatrician and get your questions answered about the results of the test.

Good luck!! I hope you can get some reassurance.
