Counting is rote memorization but try putting the counting to
a song, do kinesthetic movement as you count (clap, stomp,
etc), count steps as you walk down the hall so he has lots
and lots of repetitions.
For 1:1 give him a 10 frame and have him practice putting 1
manipulative in each square and then have him touch each
one as you count together.
HI HO Cherrio is a good game for counting and there are a
number of games for the iPad and computer that stress
counting and number recognition. I would start with only 2
or maybe 3 numbers to work on for number recognition and
increase it as he learns those.
Hope this gives you some ideas.
