So your DH turns to random strangers and says "He is autistic, that is why he is in diapers." ???

You don't need to explain yourself to anyone. It's non of the people's business.

No he says they notice it on their own

Your husband needs to learn to get over it and quickly. People will say things and stare for any and every thing.

So once they notice does he tell them the situation? If so, how does he say it?

4 yo is not too old for diapers, even for a neurotypical child.

It's not their business! My nephew wasn't potty trained until he was 5 and nobody explained why he was in diapers.
