Background and purpose: A lot of research has been done on the effectiveness of rehabilitation treatment in children with cerebral palsy. Functional mobility is one of the significant aspects in treatment of these children. This systematic meta-analysis aimed at reviewing the studies on the effectiveness of task oriented training on functional mobility in children with cerebral palsy.
Materials and methods: All articles about the effectiveness of task oriented training for functional mobility in children with cerebral palsy in English or Persian, published until January 2020, were studied by a thorough search in electronic databases, including  Medline, Embase, CINAHL, PubMed, PsychInfo, Web of Science, Magiran, ISC, and SID. After screening and assessing the quality of research papers and applying inclusion and exclusion criteria, data was analyzed by Comprehensive meta-analysis software (CMA).
Results: Out of 345 articles, eight met the inclusion criteria. The meta-analysis showed that task oriented training had more significant effect on functional mobility than other conventional approaches in children with cerebral palsy (P=0.000).
Conclusion: Task oriented approach could be used as a treatment method in improving functional mobility in children with cerebral palsy.
