Chris is a great instructor. His way of explaining Article 9 makes it clear one can and can not do as a DDD Support Provider.

This course was very informative, I only found one part confusing which is why I got that question wrong. The Red Light talked about not administering "as needed" medications, only parents can. It was clear once I re-watched the instructional video, but upon taking the test I believed the answer was that it was okay to give the medication with parental consent. I appreciated that I could go back and re-watch the video to understand why my answer was wrong.
