In almost every natural-listening environment, one must constantly construct scenes of the auditory world by grouping and analyzing sounds generated by multiple sources. We investigated whether dyslexics have difficulties grouping sounds. The results demonstrate that dyslexics have an impairment in grouping auditory objects that depends both on the sounds
