About Lynn Messing

Lynn Messing has loved language all her life. She studied four foreign languages in high school and went on to earn a doctorate in linguistics. It is therefore ironic that her son Andy, who is extremely severely affected by autism, has minimal expressive language skills.

Andy has probably taught Lynn as much about communication as all of her graduate school instructors combined, and he has definitely taught her more about patience and love.

In addition to raising Andy, Lynn also teaches computer networking and security at a nearby community college.
