I was rather shocked to see how many people in another post have had their or their childrens' IQ tested. This post isn't to debate the value of such test, merely to see how many have had a reputable test given to them (or their children).

 

My DD had one when she was 4.

share your stories... My dd was borderline aspergers and freakishy smart. We had her tested by a school psychologist. We got a lot of shit for t by family, but the results told us a lot and I'm glad we did it.

I think my parents tested me at one point but never gave me a number, and I have never taken an official test since.  I wouldn't test my children unless I had some specific reason, what is the point?  I did take a few tests in HS and college, but I doubt they were valid.  They gave me a "range."

I just googled it, certain psychiatric and medical clinics give them.  You would just have to make an appointment, I imagine.
