Metacognition, or the awareness and self-regulation of cognition is often affected following an acquired brain injury (ABI). Understanding its impact on functional outcomes in adults with ABI may guide rehabilitation strategies. Toglia and Kirk's (2000) model of metacognition was investigated via a meta-analysis, a confirmatory factor analysis, and a regression-based model assessing the ability of three metacognitive subdomains (i.e., metacognitive knowledge, anticipatory awareness, and emergent awareness) to predict functional outcomes. Broadly, findings include a positive relationship between metacognitive knowledge and functional outcomes, empirical support for Toglia and Kirk's model, and the differentiation between 'absolute' versus 'relative' scales of metacognitive assessment.
