I would try an abductor band and get them to push their hips into abduction and external rotation and do forward and side stepping with that setup. You have to use all your cues: verbal, visual, tactile, and kinesthetic. If all of that doesn't work then you may have to start by using kinesiotaping to hold his legs where you want them to be until you can start seeing some corrections.
