Children love repetition. It is very common among them hence his desire to have you repeat a story. In fact take it positively. You don’t need to have a big collection nor you need to make up stories. All you have to do is repeat. It may be boring for you but it isn’t for him. So is it not easy work for you? I hope you are giving the medicines on docto’s advice. Regarding improving speech kindly follow the advice of his doctor. He may take time so all you need is to be patient, encouraging and supportive. Keep talking to him. Forllow a routine. Children in the autism spectrum require a strict routine. Routine makes life easier for them. Or else a confusion can make it chaotic. Please understand that the excecutice function of the brain is impaired ( in his case very mild as you say). So routine will help. Take care.
