This issue of EmphaSIze is dedicated to ongoing continued professional development (CPD), vision and perception. Vision and the way we interpret this sense through visual perception are important skills needed for developing reading and writing. These are two essential skills needed when completing our CPD! Our editors picks this month will focus on stimulating the visual sense and developing visual perception. We will also look at some ways that you can participate in CPD activities using the resources of the SI Network and share with you what other members have already been busy doing. Happy reading!
