The CPG states that “compliance with task-oriented home programs for motor skills training intervention correlated with positive changes in motor proficiency and postural control compared with children who received a core stability-focused home program.” Core stability training when combined with functional training can be a beneficial treatment strategy for these children. Core training completed in isolation is not expected to produce functional gains (similar to strengthening in isolation for children with CP does not improve function, strengthening must be completed during functional tasks for functional outcomes to be achieved). So, to make a long answer short – yes to both of your questions!
