Looking is natural when meeting someone new. We look more and for longer when someone looks unusual.
Stephen was born with Syndactyly (fusion of fingers). Syndactyly normally occurs in animals and is extremely unusual in humans. Four fingers on his right hand were fused together and, with numerous skin graft and plastic surgery operations, the index finger has been seperated.
Stephen highlights and discusses the methods and strategies he adopts in terms of 'psychological' & 'psychosocial' impact. He is right-handed, leads a normal (and fun) life and he just cannot catch a ball or clench a fist.
