I would like to echo Tina's congratulations on your openness and willingness to help your child.
There is a lot of information available on the internet about the processes and procedures to follow when an individual considers themselves to be transgendered. A lot of this information can be very misleading and confusing. Therefore the best process to follow is to find a psychologist who is knowledgeable about transgenderism and who would be able to evaluate your child and give a qualified diagnosis. From this point on the psychologist will be able to refer you and your child to other medical practitioners who would be able to assist in the transition process.
