Not sure about neurodiversity specifically, but Vonnegut or Keller are my main go to guys regarding the eccentricities of the human mind.

Thinking about it, you might enjoy A Curious Incident of the Dog in the Nighttime if you've not already come across it.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6ksPDRSnhr0 - you might be interested in this. Jess has Tourette's, but talks a lot about neurodiversity more generally (from what I can remember, watched it when it came out as I'm a big fan of Richard Herring's podcast).
