Deaf Studies & Research


Listen Up Foundation aims to create a network of experts in the field of Deaf Studies. The focus is mainly on the training of deaf specialists – sign language lecturers, deaf sign language interpreters, teachers for deaf children, developers of educational and information resources and others.


In addition, a number of studies on deaf people and the organization of specialized initiatives for the training of specialists in the education of deaf people will be worked on. Last but not least, the aim is to establish a connection with higher education institutions with one main mission, namely the creation and implementation of a Deaf Studies major and/or others related to the Bulgarian sign language and Deaf culture.
