In brief: Depends on age
The Bayley Scales of Infant Development early on and the Differential Abilities Scales starting at 2 1/2 are two of many standardized tests.
If you suspect a delay in a child under 3, you can ask for a referral to an Early Intervention program; 3-5, ask for Child Find through your local school district.
