In brief: Ask parent
I think it is great that a teacher is interested in learning more and how to interact with a child with this condition.
Most of the time parents can offer you the best advice as they live with it and know what works and what doesn't with their child. They can tell you triggers and effective ways to handle the moods. I start there and then branch out to psychologist/psychiatrists for help. Good luc.
