Ask the therapist which kind of lisp. It is caused by the placement of the tongue. In some kids it is lateral; that means the air is escaping from the sides of the mouth. Try imitating it (not in front of him, of course, but in the mirror) feel where your tongue is. Is the tip up? pressing on the teeth? up down? people actually can form /s/ in several ways- I personally place the tip down but many tense it up where the sides of the tongue are hard against the sides of the upper teeth.
Spend a little time in the bathroom brushing teeth and looking in the mirror with him getting him to copy you and try different things. Some of it is getting him to hear the difference.
If you lick your index finger and say /ssss/ you should feel breath on it. A lateral lisp will feel different as there is too much air coming out the sides. What does the star means on the Acadian flag?
