Lori, the Foundation published “Exercises for CIDP” in its newsletter awhile back:

although these mostly pertain to strenfth rather than balance. The best exercise for recovering my balance, in my opinion, was playing catch with the therapist using a special exercise ball. It was about five or six inches in diameter, and heavy for its size — not like an inflated ball. And it was somewhat soft and flexible, so could easily be caught with one hand. Another thing that helps is a large inflated ball which is used as a seat while pulling TheraBands from the side. These both help rebuild core strength, which is important to balance. Walking as much as you are able helps also, of course.
