Body Functions and Structures form one component of the ICF. Coding of items within these 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 components is also presented.
