I linked to CBD but I know you can get them at Rainbow Resource Center as well.
Just so you know, there is no Christian content in them, in case that matters one way or the other.

He started with 1 min re-tells. You give them something to read and the read it as fast as they can for 1 min and then re-tell you what it said. They practice that for a week. Then you progress to 2 mins for a couple of weeks. Finally progressing to 5 mins. When you hit the 5 min mark, after they re-tell what they read, you ask the sort of comprehension questions you are mentioning.
My ds was a slow reader until this training.
