The hearing test will be done around Christmas...Jennie already answered this.
Also, her daughter is/was diagnosed as either ADD or ADHD...while I don't agree with such a diagnosis at such a young age, particularly in kindergarten when many children are learning to socialize for the first time. This could possibly explain what is going on. Thus, the reason I feel this is normal for Ayla. Again, all 4 of my children went through this...much of it is just an immature speech pattern that will correct itself during socialization.
Heck, I know a family who is getting SSDI because their child said "bwink" instead of "drink" at the age of 4. She is now 7 and has no speech problems whatsoever. Many times, but not always, socialization is the key to proper speech techniques.
