Teaching to special needs

I know someone whose son is a musician, studying music education. This person mentioned that her son has been teaching music lessons to children with developmental disabilities, some of whom are profoundly delayed. I immediately asked if he is taking music therapy classes, or is aware of music therapy. Apparently, he is not taking any music therapy related curriculum, but does know about music therapy. I know that he has supervisors, but they are not music therapists, either. Learning this made me uneasy, though I was delighted that this person reportedly loves working with these students. Curious.
