Start talking to him as much you can.and avoid responding to his gestures, since unless you reduce your response, he will not put in required efforts. Like teach him how to ask for water, like do you want water? Instead of right away handing him glass of water. Encourage him to speak and follow it next time. One sentence per day can also bring huge differences. If still not, then review with a speech therapist for proper speech exercises. Also i would like to recommend you to get his IQ assessed by a paediatrician
