If you can't read text, how can you read symbols?

If you were illiterate you could still be taught mathematics and the symbols involved, i.e. learn verbally, or experimentally etc... but being taught math, or learning it yourself would imply a situation or disposition that would lend itself to learning written language first, and more importantly.
