It is a place where children develop their potential, get inspired, learn through experience and play, acquire confidence. Our philosophy relies on the understanding that each child is a universe. That is why we use individual approach in education, following the children's rhythm and encouraging their strengths. Our main goal is to build on what is learnt at school with development and application of innovative educational approaches. They consider the dynamical society processes combining development of communication skills and logical thinking, and introduction to art, culture and new technologies.

Andy and Aya Academy is managed by the social enterprise Deaf Kids Power in partnership with the Listen Up Foundation. The foundation develops innovative solutions for equal access to information and communication for deaf people and for their empowerment. Deaf Kids Power is focused on development of innovative educational practices.

Training at Andy and Aya Academy is partially paid by the parents and is subsidised with donations and sales of Deaf Kids Power products with a cause. The donation and the proceeds from sales are invested in attracting additional specialists to the Academy, further qualification, development of new methods and educational courses and resources, new equipment, etc.

In 2018 were published the first two books of The Adventures of Andy and Aya series about the deaf girl Dara and two toys, the giraffe Andy and the doll Aya. They are also available in English from Amazon.

Currently about 30 children attend the Academy for individual or groups sessions for preschool (aged 4-6) and primary school age (1st-4th grade). Groups for students in secondary and high school are planned.

In the last academic year the Academy offered courses in Bulgarian language, science, social and communication training and art therapy, and this year we added three new modules: mathematical puzzles and logics, English language and digital sciences in partnership with Telerik Academy.School Individual classes with speech and hearing therapist work for development of hearing, speech and general communication skills. Sign language is also used in the education.
