Current H-4 child dependent on dad's H-1B, can someone explain to me some more specifics regarding what a GC EAD is?

Hello! I'm currently another Indian who came here at 1 (now 15) but has to suffer in the terribly long backlog that plagues those of us seeking a greencard. As far as I was aware, H-4 child dependents are unable to work since only spouses are able to qualify for an EAD. However, my mom (who's on a H4 EAD) recently mentioned something called a 'GC EAD' which would allow me to work despite not being a full permanent resident at that point, and I don't exactly understand what it means. If anyone could do an 'ELI5' or break it down a little, for me, I would really appreciate it.
