 remedy tone deafness in six-year-old?

My daughter is now six years old, and is still totally tone deaf.  She
can't tell me whether two piano notes are the same.  She learns songs
enthusiastically, sings the words well, but to a random melody.

Her mother is tone deaf.

Is there anything I can do to remedy this condition in my daughter?

(Please send mail; it's hard to keep up with the news gusher.)

What, exactly, is tone deafness? Is it a clinical entity at all? I've been
told that I'm "tone deaf"; I just always assumed that this meant I have no
musical ability. I can tell whether one note on a piano is higher than
another, but I can't tell what the relationship is other than that.
Concepts like "octave", "key", "flat", etc. have always eluded me.

Needless to say, I was the despair of a long line of music teacher. My
singing sounds fine to me, but it would get me thrown out of class because
the teacher assumed I was making fun of him. (Talk about a scarred
childhood!) And yes, people say I sing to a "random melody", with random
"key changes", whatever they are.

I'm encouraged by the news that I might be a member of a disadvantaged
group. Are there any federal programs I can take advantage of?
