Update, about one year later...
(sorry for the slo-mo, I know you guys like to count frames...)
Wrist angles relative to the barrel.... Can't stress it enough.

"Careful man there's a beverage here"..... THE DUDE
What did she work on improving?
I really don't like the flow of the swing, to much "generating" the swing and not enough letting it happen. Could this be a case where less is more?
She is still standing up on the front leg, raising the body as she extends the front leg. She is on the front leg. You want the front leg to be relaxed and then quickly contracting the qaud which pushes the front hip back (extends the front leg), swing against the front leg and not on the front leg.
"It is hard to fill a cup that is already full"
I would look into working on some rhythm drills off a tee. A ‘step back’ drill comes to mind. While doing this I would purposely slow down her feet during the drill. Once comfortable I would do the same thing off a smooth front toss progressing to game speed. Video and post.
Step back drill execution:
Start balanced 50/50. Hands relaxed.Tee set up down the middle. Hop to the front foot slowly. Hop back to the back foot slowly. Swing. Line drives up the middle is the goal.
Ps. Have your DD feel the weight back in her back hip. Thats the feel your looking for her to get from the drill to translate into her game swing.https://youtu.be/gug2rL8ABOQ

Thanks in advance.
This is an extreme position. You would have a hard time finding many/any players in the model hitting thread that ever reach this position with the back elbow so that would be something I would study and see how that affects other parts of the swing downstream.
. I kind of get it. I am certain that this concept would help with my DD's swing. Could you (FFS) give a brief explanation so I can explain it correctly to my kid?
