I agree with Ira about talking to the pros. You might start with your pediatrician and also the special education people at school.
As far as the bedroom walls, you might take a wall and cover it with a washable plastic and give him washable magic markers. If this is not possible, you might hang big pieces of brown paper that he can write on with crayons. This writing is very expressive. You should try to encourage it by making a place for him to do it without harming anything.
By the way, I wrote on the walls when I was growing up. I remember a area over my bed, about 4 by 4 feet which I colored in with orange crayon. My mother never could get it off until she took the wallpaper off.
