Objectives: Postural control deficit is one of the most important problems in children with spastic cerebral palsy (CP). The purpose of this paper is to review the reactive postural control in spastic children with CP.

Methods: Researches on development of reactive postural control in typically developing (TD) children and children with Cerebral Palsy (CP) were analyzed.

Results: The results of this review revealed at least three main systems of reactive postural control, including: sensory, motor, and cognitive systems. These systems develop in a nonlinear mode. Maturation of postural control depends on the reach of each system to an adequate threshold of development and organization.

Discussion: limited data indicated the development of reactive postural control in children with CP occur similar to TD children but with limitation in motor function and sensory organization.
