Semistructured interviews (n = 14) were conducted, transcribed verbatim, and analyzed using thematic analysis method. Five main themes and 14 subthemes were emerged from the interviews: “communication breakdown,” “physical functioning,” “social interaction,” “emotional reaction,” and “coping with Parkinson disease.” Applying International Classification of Functioning, Disability and Health framework gives a holistic description for patients' challenges and assists speech-language pathologists to improve their services. © 2020 Wolters Kluwer Health, Inc.
