Abstract Body Functions and Body Structures form one component of the International Classification of Functioning, Disability, and Health (ICF). Coding of items within these ICF chapters can be useful in speech-language pathology to provide a holistic overview of an individual's condition, but only if this component is considered alongside the other components that make up the ICF. This paper outlines the Body Functions and Body Structures codes that are most relevant to speech-language pathology and discusses the overlap that occurs with the Activities and Participation component. A review of the strengths and limitations of the ICF Body Structures and Body Functions component,, is also presented.
