You son has a developmental expressive language disorder which can be caused by brain injury from previous fever jaundice, episode ,problems in delivery
I recommend that you see a neurologist and a speech-language pathologist , in my opinion orthophonist is not related to his problem at all , he does need letters pronounced, he needs to be able to express them (give brain order. )

Good Luck

your child has a developmental expressive language disorder (DELD), he might have difficulty remembering vocabulary words or using complex sentences
DELD is usually limited to expression and doesn’t affect your child’s ability to read, listen, or produce sounds unless your child also has other learning disabilities.
Language therapy,counseling ,are the main treatment lines. .
A neurologist also should be consulted .

he seems to be having a congenital damage to his neuronal cells in brain due to asphyxia.
get his CT and EEG done.
consult a speech therapist and a neurophysician.
