Wikipedia has a good overview of the process. But if you absolutely need one, go to a certified person...

But if you need it for an official evaluation or diagnosis, you'll need to find someone qualified to administer a test. If you have a college or university anywhere near you, call their testing center. If they can't help, they may be able to point you in the right direction.
Pretty pretty please, don't you ever ever feel
Like you're less than, less than perfect
DS was tested by the leading childrens's psychologist in our home country. The process was expensive but the tests and interviews lasted 3 hours.
He also took an online test before this.
The IQ test online had him as below average intelligence and the top psychologist placed him in the gifted range. This kid taught himself 100 Chinese words at 5, was doing his 8th grade brother maths homework for fun at age 8 etc etc. Just wanted to use these examples to illustrate that the online test was wrong and wrong by 50 IQ points!!!!!
“We must let go of the life we have planned, so as to accept the one that is waiting for us.”
My DS was kept out of the gifted program for 2 years at school because it was mainly a verbal test for the younger grades, assuming they can't read well yet....of course in second grade they give him the reading based test, and he scored off the charts smart. Too bad they can't test motivational drive now.....That's our problem these days.
