If you know of research on this question, perhaps you could cc Mike B. 
in your reply.
My sister is in the education field and she is looking for theory and 
research to refute an influential paper which claims introducing symbols 
to non-readers actually hampers their ability to develop literacy 
skills. The little I have read on AT and semiotics seems to at least 
indicate that under certain conditions, symbols can aid literacy. But I 
am looking for something specific and/or definite.
