Children with ASD struggle with this concept as well as most abstract things, from what I understand and have seen. The only thing I can think of (not a real strategy, just an idea) is to engage them about what they did that morning, what their mother likes to do on Sundays, etc. Asking about events not happening in the moment might help them develop initial skills? I don't know! I want to find out.
