Can I keep child tax credits if child (18) is enrolled @ college but cannot attend due to ill health

Son has been struggling with college and is doing a phased return due to ill health and is struggling to cope with being back at college. The college have said they feel it would be best if he has the rest of the year off and starts again in September. He will still be enrolled on the course. If he chooses to stay off until September, will my child tax credits stop? Don't want to phone child tax credits as husband is on legacy benefits and don't want to trigger a universal credit claim. Thanks
