Difference between PDD and GDD?

Hello,
   We noticed our son was a bit different when he was about 16-18 months old. Now he is 6 years old and we are still trying to find the answers. He has been through many tests. He has seen a set of doctors since he was 3 years old. They first diagnosed him with Verbal Dyspraxia and developmental delays. He goes every year. This year they diagnosed him with GDD (Global Developmental Delay) A doctor we seen this past summer diagnosed him with PDD-NOS. I looked up both PDD and GDD and they seem like the same thing. Only PDD is on the ASD and GDD is not. Whats the difference??
