RESULTS: in the five tests, 126 orthographic mistakes had been analyzed: the majority, 52.4%, in the multiple representations category, matching the cases without PC; followed by omissions (12.7%), generalization (11.1%), similar letters (6.3%), support in orality, junction-separation and am x ão confusion with 3.2%, addition of letters (1.6%), de-voicing-voicing (0.8%), with no inversion mistake and 5.5% classified as "others".
