This paper provides definitions of the concept of metacognition and explores its relationship to occupational performance. Metacognition is divided into two components: awareness and executive functions. Assessments of awareness and executive functions are reviewed, treatment guidelines for metacognitive deficits are delineated, and research findings related to clients with neurological dysfunctions are summarized. Finally, the importance of integrating metacognitive components into occupational therapy theory and practice is emphasized.
