What's age of your child. Best option is cochlear implant if there's no other issue

The child is an ideal candidate for cochlear implant. It will give the child normal/ near normal speech and he/she will lead a normal life. If you are not able to afford it, admit the child in a deaf school to learn sign language. The child will at least learn to communicate with sign language.
