Your daughter does not have psychiatry problem and the delay in speech development is a consequence of thyroid issues in early stage. Ou cna patiently wait after correction of thyroid profile. More details need to be discussed and a check up is needed.
If it is late diagnosed congenital hypothyroidism then it may create issue with learning ability. Consult endocrinologist first.
