Is there a difference between low achiever and General learning difficulties?

My son had a problem spotted at school and I eventually got him tested by the school , the result was processing problem. He had an EP assessment which I never received results of but I was told he was a low achiever with a low working memory, I was informed first by Banardos my supporters, the head, and also connexions and then eventually the EP herself . I was unhappy as EP told everyone except me the result so I emailed a complaint. She called and asked can she come to my home to explain her findings. During the visit she said she was going to do more tests and this time the result was General learning difficulties. I have since been informed the two are the same. I cant believe they are but as my local councils head of SEND tells me this is the case and I can't argue if I am unaware so leaves me unsure what to think. I also ended up paying for a private assessment which showed Dyspraxia with possible co occurring Asperger's. Any advice please,
