My 7 yr old son wipes his s*** on walls!!

Yup, you read that right, and I have no idea what to do about it. On more than one occasion I have found feces wiped off on my bathroom walls, sink, and cabinet. Each time my son admitted to having done it, but he says he doesn't know why. I asked him if it's because he's having a difficult time wiping and he said no. It's DISGUSTING! I tried explaining why it's dangerous to do that, how dirty it is, punishing him, making him clean it, etc. I'm at my wit's end! Do you guys have any suggestions?

ETA: For those asking, he has ADHD & ODD, but I don't consider that special needs like autism for ex.

Make him wear a diaper until he can be trusted to take care of himself properly.

Maybe he is just grossed out when it gets on his hand. My dd completely freaks if she gets some on her

Watch him when he goes to the bathroom? He may be embarrassed enough after a couple times he'll stop doing it

That could be it, but how the heck is he getting that much poop on his hand?!

Hm. She has him on a list for a program that is supposedly specially for that (according to a post she made the other night).
