Speech concepts

My ds is 4.5 (ASD) has speech & language delay and disorder started mainstream reception in September. He has had a great first term, ahead with reading and maths and socially thriving in his own way. His speech is slowly improving but he has real problems consistently understanding who/where/what/when questions. Just wondered if anyone had any tips of how to help? At the moment his books are v simple stories and he seems to have pretty good comprehension but as they get more sophisticated I can see his reading ability being way ahead of ability to understand/communicate. He speaks in 1-3 words generally and learnt phrases it is improving but v slowly. Thanks

Question Builder on iPad is quite good.

Have you tried colourful semantics for question words?

Thanks for replying, question builder looks really good and he loves the iPad. There was a lot of discussion between school/OT/SALT around "colourful semantics" v "shape coding" SALT prefer shape coding and they plan to start this term. He responds very well visually/words hence he is doing really well with reading so fingers crossed it will help extend his sentences.
