Is this s complete sentence?
Is this considered a complete sentence:

No, it is not. There is no main verb. A complete sentence would be "Such-and-such is a neuro-developmental disorder that affects...." etc.

No, the subject is not missing
"A neoro-developmental disorder" could easily be made into the subject.
There is no "Verb" in the sentence for the subject ""A neoro-developmental disorder".
When you add "which" or "that", it makes the part of the sentence
that follows relate to the words before as a modifier (adverb or
adjective clause) . It is no longer part of the main part of the sentence.
"that affects an individual's behavior and communication ability"
so now the verb "affects" is part of a clause.
the "that" makes it an adjective clause describing ""A neoro-developmental disorder"
If you just remove the "that", it becomes a completes sentences
This is a complete sentence.
"A neoro-developmental disorder affects an individual's behavior and communication ability."

Barkley Hound is right. The sentence is missing a subject. Try to say the sentence out loud. Does it make sense? No. You should be saying "The doctor says that a neuro-developmental bla bla bla...." or finish the sentence off like "...communication ability is commonly known as itchytosis." The sentence rn sounds weird. Add a noun/the disease/disorder name at the beginning or end and you'll have a complete sentence.
Remember, a sentence has to have a subject, a verb, and a complete idea. You were missing the subject and the complete idea.

It is not complete. The subject is missing.
"Bla bla is a neoro-developmental disorder that affects an individual's behavior and communication ability."
