I observed a therapy session where they played games on an iPad. It was at the end of the session and the child saw it as the reward, but the clinician had the student explain to her how to play the game, so it was part of therapy for working on connected speech.
Another child loved basketball so the clinician had 5 mins of a Lakers game on youtube. She would stop the video and have the client tell her what happened, again under guise of needing it explained
Boardgames are another. Not sure if this can be incorporated, I've seem many a boardgame created by the therapist, roll the dice, move your piece and then you have to do whatever the therapy is. Motivation is winning the board game.
You may also find that it's difficult for you to be the therapist. I worked with a boy of similar age to DS and he was doing everything I asked. I tried same thing at home and DS wasn't having any of it. My supervisor suggested at first I set aside 5-10 mins to work with DS a day and to not push for anymore. I'm his mum not his speech therapist. With time, I might be able to increase time we work together.
