Advice for parents who have a child with speech delay?

My daughter is 28 months (2 years old) and can only say a handful of words and can’t put together sentences either. We recently had an appointment with her pediatrician and have mentioned or concerns of her being non verbal as well as her lack of interaction with other children. The next steps will be a hearing test, autism assessment as well as getting her in the head start program (if they feel she qualifies) I’m not sure as to what can be the problem but I just want to know if any parents have dealt with a similar situation, and if so what did you do differently to help your child become verbal . I know it will take time but would love to hear some advice.
