    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."
