My 4 year old step son doesn't talk

My step son will be 5 in November and still does not talk. He says select words when he feels like it, but they aren't necessarily in the right context. When anyone says 'hi Daniel!' To him he repeats the same thing back, and when we try to correct him by saying 'I am not daniel, you are Daniel' and give him visuals by pointing to him when I say his name he still does not understand. He works with a speech therapist once a week but the behaviors aren't being worked with when the therapist isn't there. He cannot sit still long enough and does not have the attention span to want to sit and learn anything. I feel so helpless because he will be starting school in the fall and I feel like he will be ridiculed and there is nothing I can do about it
