is pdd-nos a spectrum?

hi, i have pdd-nos and so does my cousin and some of my acquaintances. i was wondering if pdd-nos worked in a spectrum like autism does. my cousin has different symptoms than me, but we are at a very similar functioning level (if that makes sense), is there a reason for this? is there a spectrum of high to low functioning like there is with classic autism spectrum disorders, or is it on the same spectrum.

some people have told me that pdd-nos is part of the autism spectrum because it is an autism spectrum disorder, would it follow the same functioning labels even though we only have some of the traits? sorry if that doesn't make sense, i can try to explain better if you ask.
