VILLAR, Delia  and  VIEIRO, Pilar. READING METHODS AND ONLINE LEXICAL ACCESS IN BEGGINER READERS. Cienc. Psicol. [online]. 2015, vol.9, n.2, pp.309-319. ISSN 1688-4094.

The aim of this study was to analyze online lexical access in first-grade students according to the learning method used at school. To that end, we selected two groups of students depending on the learning method to read (global vs. synthetic - phonetic). We analyzed the responses of subjects based on verification rates (reading words) and time. We manipulated stimuli based on a set of criteria (degree of familiarity of the word, length and positional syllable frequency). Students who used overall method of decoding showed difficulties since their reading times in low familiarity words and low frequency positional syllabic were significantly higher. Students of the synthetic method proved more adept at decoding but their reading times were significantly higher in almost all parameters. These results confirm the idea that the method affects learning strategies used by students depending on the lexical and sublexical features of the word
